    Vito Priante, on the other hand, sang beautifully, with perfect French diction and attentive phrasing…. (Bachtrack, 20 May 2014)

     

    Vito Priante was convincing in the ‘evil’ roles (Lindorf, Coppélius, Dr. Miracle, Dapertutto). His voice was highlighted by a beautiful tone and superb singing that accentuates the wicked demeanor of the characters without becoming grotesque.  (Mundo Classico, 30 May 2014)

  • Il Barbiere di Siviglia - Teatro Regio di Torino

    « Figaro è Vito Priante, che ha voce curata, elegante, musicale, in linea con la direzione di De Marchi. Un Figaro che ovviamente libera la vocalità e il personaggio dalle bellurie della tradizione. Lo riporta nell’alveo di un canto educato e stilisticamente appropriato. Un’impostazione di questo genere non è l’ideale per fare il botto nella celebre Cavatina di sortita, che siamo abituati a sentire cantare sempre con altra esuberanza. Ma prese le misure sull’impostazione misurata di Priante, ci godremo un personaggio che si afferma di scena in scena, garbato, ironico, pungente e buffo. Concorrono al risultato la bella musicalità, la corretta dizione, un fraseggio sempre attento a dare rilievo alla parola, la figura scenica ed il gesto naturale e pertinente.» (Giancarlo Landini, operaclick.com, novembre 2013)

  • La Cenerentola – Los Angeles Opera

     

    “Vito Priante, also new to the L.A. stage, not only displayed a scabrous comic talent as Dandini, he could even sing (like the ideal Beckmesser) coloratura passages with deliberate badness and still convince us of his prowess as a singer. “  (Opera News, June 2013)

     

     “Most impressive is Italian bass-baritone Vito Priante as the prince’s servant, Dandini. Priante has made a bit of a career playing outrageous servants and is known for his Figaro and his Leporello. Here he provides a good portion of the onstage comedy while keeping the musical pace.”    (LA Downtown News, March 2013)

     

     “It is clear that Priante is having fun in the role of valet-turned prince. He shines as he plays off of Barbera’s energy, and there is a gleeful lilt to his voice as he orders Don Ramiro around for a change, making him pick up his hat and follow his commands.”  (Daily Trojan, March 2013)

     

    “Vito Priante was as foppishly hilarious as he was musically adept. Articulating every phrase, singing with sprightly vigor, he embodied the swaggering Captain of Commedia dell’Arte fame crossed with the willfulness of a cagey Harlequin.”   (Seen and Heard International, March 2013)

     

    “Vito Priante, a forceful bass-baritone, proved very funny as Dandini.”  (LA Times, March 2013)

      

     

    “Vito Priante as Dandini plays with great flourish the servant who pretends to be the prince.”  (LA Splash, March 2013)

  • La Cenerentola – Vienna Staatsoper

     

     

    “The valet Dandini, baritone Vito Priante performed with great agility and suppleness.” (Die Presse.com, January 2013)

  • Il Prigioniero – Teatro Real, Madrid

     

    “In the first cast the protagonist of Il Prigioniero was Vito Priante, who offered an intense and convincing performance.”  (Seen and Heard International, November 2012)
